One LTA scholar shares his zeal for contributing to the improvement of Singapore's transport system.

As a child, Ho Chin Ning had always been fascinated with the notion of transport. “I always wondered who determines the duration for the green man to appear and change, and now I know it's my colleagues at the Land Transport Authority (LTA),” says the 26-year-old.
Chin Ning's deep curiosity for all things related to transport turned out to be a major driving force behind his career choice. After being selected for the LTA scholarship, the Raffles Junior College alumnus proceeded to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Cornell University, followed by a Master of Science in Transportation at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the space of four years.
